Put mutliple DoCmd.RunSQL lines into a transaction?

In my VBA code, I have these two statement to call the linked Oracle table (in Access):

DoCmd.RunSQL "Update ... table1"
DoCmd.RunSQL "Update ... table2"

system will pop up a message to ask you to confirm that "the record will be changed".

My question are:
1. how to disable this kind of confirmation message?
2. How to set up transaction in VBA to make sure the two statements are executed together? Any sample code will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi heyday2004,

1. In your code add DoCmd.SetWarnings False before the updates & DoCmd.SetWarnings True after
2. For transactions you might be better off creating a stored procedure in Oracle

Good Luck!

Thanks. For question 2, i know stored procedure is the best, but for some reason, I couldn't use that for now. I am wondering how much risk it is to call several lines of DoCmd.RunSQL to update the record. thanks.
